Therefore, the way a child is brought up, and the culture he or she lives in is as important as the way he or she is born. The feeling that there is something different may start as early as 3 years old when children begin forming their gender ID either as a boy or a girl.
“Who am I?” this is the one question that all teens at some point think about. Part of the answer lies in their sexual self. The teen years can be a confusing time. Hormones, cultural and peer pressures, and fear of being different can cause many teens to question themselves in many areas, including their sexual orientation and gender identity. Gender identity is your internal sense of whether you are male or female, while sexual orientation is the romantic and sexual attraction to other people, to the opposite sex sometimes to the same sex, and to both sexes in some cases. This attraction typically starts to form in the preteen years. Same-sex crushes during teen years is common and some teens may experiment sexually. But these early experiences do not always dictate that they will be gay, lesbian, or bisexual as an adult. For some teens, though, same-sex attractions do not fade. They grow stronger.
